If you are a video creator, editor or producer, you will know how much time it takes to add subtitles to YouTube videos. There are many benefits to including subtitles in videos. With this you can also deliver videos to people who know different languages. If someone likes to watch the video on mute, then subtitles become very important for him. Here we are telling you the easiest way to add subtitles to your YouTube video.

Add subtitles to videos when uploading to YouTube

You will need a computer or laptop to add subtitles to a video using the YouTube Studio app.
First of all YouTube Open Studio and login to your channel.
Click on the upload video icon and start uploading your video.
During the upload process, you will have to go through several sections like details, rights management, etc.
When you come to the video element, you will see the option to add subtitles. Under that, click on Add and you will see three options – Upload File, Auto-Sync and Type Manually.

Upload File: If you have a file that contains the exact script used in the video, you can select the With Timing option. Whereas if you have text that needs to be in sync with what you are saying in the video, you can select the Without Timing option. YouTube will automatically sync subtitles according to your video.

Auto-Sync: You can copy and paste your captions, then YouTube will auto-sync them to your video.

Type manually: With this option you can type subtitles manually while watching the video.

After this is completed, you have to check the subtitles and match them with your video. You can also change the time by editing the timestamp. Then preview the final video with subtitles and re-edit the text if you see any mistakes. Now your video will have subtitles and when it is published on YouTube, you will be able to see the subtitles written right below it and your viewers can choose to watch the subtitles as per their preference.

Add subtitles to pre-uploaded YouTube videos

If you are logged in to your YouTube channel, click on the profile photo icon on the top right and then go to your channel. Click Manage Videos and open the video you want to add subtitles to.
Now scroll down and click on Subtitles on the right side.
If YouTube has automatically transcribed your video, you can edit these captions. But the biggest drawback is that it takes a lot of time to edit this text. Apart from this, click on the three dots right next to Edit Timing and select the Clear Text option. Now you will have two options. First type the subtitles of the video manually or click on the three dots and select the upload file option. You can choose any option of your choice.

If you do not see automatic captions when you click on the subtitle option, then you will get 3 options – Upload file, auto-sync and type manually. For this, you can follow Step 2 of the previous guide on how to use these options. Once this is done, check the subtitles and match them with your video. You can also change the time by editing the timestamp. Then preview the final video with subtitles and re-edit the text if you notice any mistakes. Now your video will have subtitles and when it is published on YouTube, you will be able to see the subtitles written just below it and your viewers will be able to watch the subtitles as per their choice.
